During the initial assessment, our team will determine if ketamine is likely to be a safe and effective option for you. We will get to know you, understand the your symptoms, and learn what treatments you have tried before. You will complete symptom rating scales that establish a baseline of symptomatology. We will discuss ketamine generally, how it affects your brain, the experiences most people have when being treated with ketamine, the likely benefits of ketamine treatment, and the possible risks of treatment. Together, we make an informed decision about whether to proceed with ketamine treatment.
